[ARCHIVED] Planning Commission Public Hearing

Project Title:     Consider an ordinance amending the Grand County Land Use Code (LUC) by amending Article 3 (Use Standards), Article 4 Special Purpose Overlay Districts and Article 6 (General Development Standards) to address impacts on the public health, safety and welfare due to noise producing commercial uses which are incompatible with adjacent residential zoned parcels or existing schools, churches, parks and playgrounds, and to clarify and improve organizational structure of existing sub-sections.

Project Description: 

Update LUC Section 3.2.3 to establish use-specific standards for businesses that produce noise, including car washes, auto repair shops, kennels, and outfitter guide businesses (Outfitter B), which are a permitted use or require a conditional use permit, and where the noise producing business is located on a parcel which abuts a residential zoned parcel, or an existing school, church,  park or playground. An additional setback will be required from the commercial activity to the residential zoned parcel or said existing uses, and if within a specific distance, a sound-reducing buffer shall be installed to mitigate the noise impact on surrounding incompatible uses. 

Update Article 4 to establish a new Overlay District to permit Outfitter Guide Businesses that offer “U-Drive” or “Follow Behind” tours with street legal all terrain or utility vehicles. Update LUC Section 6.10, Compatibility Standards to establish Noise Mitigation requirements.
